Does Greenland not qualify as a country for a reason?

Greenland is a territory of Denmark, so it isn't recognized as it's own country.

Greenland declared full independence from Denmark in 2009, however it's not fully recognized by Denmark and Greenland is still very dependent on financial and political aid. Greenland is independent unless you ask the Danish for their opinion.

Greenland is independent and does have its own parlament when concerning Greenlands inner structure (domestic policy) However Greenland does have two mandates in the danish parlament, its head of state is Queen Margrethe II, who choses a deputy for the Danish monarcy and government. Things Greenland and Denmark have to work together on are subject such as foreign- and defence policy, police, court of laws and currency..

Greenland is not a territory of Denmark. It is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, and the KOD consists of three countries: Denmark, Greenland and Faroe Islands. As an example of Greenland's independent nationhood, it has withdrawn from the European Union despite Denmark remaining inside of it.

Forgin thinks if 50,000 people declare themselves to be a sovereign state, there would be chaos. Vatican City, Tuvalu, Nauru, and Monaco are all under 50,000, and have declared themselves independent, but I don't see any chaos.

What forgin means is that a sovreign country has to be recognized by other countries in order to be a country. As no countries recognize Greenland as a sovreign country, Greenland is not a country. On the contrary, Vatican City, Tuvalu, Nauru and Monaco are all recognized by every country.

Yet, as the site is American oriented Taiwan and Kosovo feature as countries everywhere.... Not recognized by the UN. Technically Vatican and Palestine have the same status, but again, the Americans chose to recognize one (Vatican) and not the other (Palestine).

level 50
Sep 18, 2016
The Vatican is not part of the UN per their own request. They are fully recognised by most countries around the world. Palestine, Kosovo, South Ossetia, Taiwan (Taipei if you are Chinese) are not fully recognised by most countries due to political ties and coercion. Instability and usually what underlies the motivation and support of a region becoming independent are the reasons that creates the possibility to be fully or practically fully recognised around the world.

Greenland is an autonomous region of Denmark. If my understanding is correct, Greenland has full sovereignty on all internal matters but must defer to the Danish government for any international matters.
+1

Aug 19, 2016
Greenland is an autonomous country within Denmark, and has no control over it's foreign policy for example. Greenlanders also hold Danish citizenship, which should be enough proof to disqualify any claims that Greenland is a sovereign country.

Actually, Great Britain refers to the Island on which reside England, Scotland and Wales. There was a kingdom of Great Britain from 1707-1801, which evolved into the modern 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland', but the United Kingdom has been the official name for over a century now.

Great Britain is the island that homes the countries of England, Scotland and Wales. Northern Ireland is part of a different island called Ireland. The official name is United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or United Kingdom for short. Calling the UK Great Britain would be very wrong.

Guam was a Spanish colony from the 15/1600s through the end of the 1800s, until it was taken by the US during the 1898 Spanish-American war. It became an official US territory after WWII, but I can't tell that it was ever a country in its own right.

Guinea, Guinea-bissau, Equatorial Guinea, and Papua New Guinea. Four countries with Guinea in the name. It is confusing. Took me awhile to get them straight.
+1
level 38
Apr 13, 2018
Actually, there are two countries called Guinea. However, having two Guineas made it pretty confusing, so people started calling them Guinea-Conakry and Guinea-Madina do Boe. But, Guinea-Conakry was a lot bigger than Guinea-Madina do Boe, so if you just said Guinea people would assume that you meant Guinea-Conakry. Guinea-Conakry fell out of use, and Guinea-Madina do Boe changed its capital to Bissau and its name to Guinea-Bissau.

level 59
Jan 25, 2017
You are correct. Issue was just highlighted again by the disputed change in President there. The long name used to be Islamic Republic of The Gambia - the new president has dropped Islamic from the name. The correct shorthand name is The Gambia. One reason given years ago by its government for including The - to avoid confusion with Zambia. Only one other country uses The to start its official shorthand name - The Bahamas.

Iceland was part of Denmark for centuries and in 1918 got further autonomy before finally in 1944 getting full independence.
